Comedian and broadcaster Alan Davies joined Labour party officials to open its new parliamentary office for Hampstead and Kilburn – describing the upcoming election battle as “an old fashioned election where social justice is at stake”.

The standup comic and regular panellist of BBC show QI said “someone special” was needed to replace the outgoing MP Glenda Jackson, and showed his support for Labour’s prospective parliamentary candidate Tulip Siddiq.

Cutting the ribbon of Mrs Siddiq’s new office in Kilburn High Road on Saturday, the Labour supporter said: “This is a ridiculously tight seat, in a really important election. Once you look into it, you realise that politician’s aren’t all the same - the differences really matter.”
